Onli  contends that the ancient cave painters, Nubians and Egyptians were the forerunners of mythical visual illustrated stories that laid the foundation to the modern Graphic Novel.

He often appreciates the rigor involved in creating an impressive graphic novel expands the skill set and visual vocabulary of many practicing fine or commercial artists. He uses narratives to blend figurative abstracted treatments in variable future-primitif compositions to express that initial self awareness in stories shared by most cultures across most time periods. His context may be both fine and commercial applications. His effort is to reach people who are aligned in either fine or commercial markets with the vital expressive energies of Rhythmistic Visual Art.

The Afrofuture aspects show up powerfully in his production of futuristic tribalisms imbedded in his iconic Black Age graphic novels.

Pictures and words combined to communicate and express.
